European Parcel Delivery

Sending a parcel to EU countries

If you’ve thought about shipping to other countries in Europe but need some guidance, we’re here to help.

Technically, the moment you send your goods outside of Spain, you are considered an exporter. However, thanks to the European Union, businesses benefit from the free movement of goods, meaning that goods can move freely between EU countries without having to clear customs or requiring a commercial invoice. There are some exceptions to the rule when it comes to excise goods and chemicals, however generally, this rule applies to all countries in the EU. The EU Trade page is your guide to import rules and taxes in European markets.

Which countries are part of the European Union?

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

Shipping from Spain to the UK post-Brexit

Since 1st January 2021, parcels from Europe to the United Kingdom are subject to customs and duty fees. This means that goods shipped between EU countries, UK mainland and Northern Ireland will have to clear customs and will require a commercial invoice and other export documentation. You will also need to apply for an EORI number (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) in the EU and the UK. This is needed to facilitate and continue trade between the EU and the UK. This may all seem a bit daunting at first, but we’re here to help and guide you through the process of exporting to the UK under these new circumstances.

If you are exporting from Spain to the UK, you will need:

  • Register for an EORI number
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Comply with the new Import VAT rules

The EORI Number

An Economic Operator’s Registration and Identification (EORI) number is a unique identification number assigned by customs to each importer and exporter to monitor the movement of goods. Businesses shipping from the EU to the UK are now required to register for an EORI number. An EORI number can be requested here.

The commercial invoice

A commercial invoice is used as a customs declaration. It’s provided by the person or business shipping items across international borders and describes the goods and their value to help determine the customs duties to be paid. To make filling out a customs invoice a little easier, we have prepared a visual guide explaining each section of the document.

Comply with the new Import VAT rules

If you are shipping to the UK (whether you’re a business or an individual shipper), you have to register for UK Import VAT with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). If you are selling goods into the UK that are valued at or below £135, you are responsible for collecting and paying UK. The VAT amount should be collected at the point of sale and paid to HMRC through the UK VAT registration. If you are selling goods into the UK that are valued above £135, the importer will remain responsible for paying the UK VAT. This can be paid by the importer via postponed VAT accounting or through the customs declaration.
